Amed bandits raiding Kurar Mota, a community in Bungudu Local Government Area of Zamfara State, have killed 13 police officers and three others.
The gun-wielding men had tried to invade Magami, another community in the state, but were repelled by soldiers.
“They moved to Kurar Mota community and attacked the police formation near the township clinic. The criminals then dashed into the forest,” Kabir Dansada, a resident, was quoted by Daily Trust as saying.
“The slain officers and the injured ones were conveyed to Gusau in a convoy of police vehicles this afternoon. I saw several police vehicles move towards the area.”
